Make choices that make you truly happy

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
You are the director of your life! Only you know what will make you truly happy. What do you want the movie of your life to look like? Can you imagine it?
In every situation we have a choice. We can concentrate on what is in front of us, accept what is happening as the only possibility, and stay in it. Or, we can acknowledge that it exists and then make a conscious choice to create another, more desirable, outcome. You have the power to create that perfect outcome! You have a blank piece of paper to work with in every moment of your existence.
This is the question you must always ask yourself. What do I want the outcome of this situation to be?
I’d like to share an example from one of my clients to show you just how powerful we are.
Nearly 3 years ago my client went in for an annual physical and was told that the results of her blood work found that she had Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As they explained to her the nature and symptoms of this disease she was completely surprised at the finding. She had none of the symptoms. In fact, she was highly energetic and felt great. She worked out on a frequent basis and took weekly bike rides of 50- 60 miles in distance at that time. She is incredibly physically fit and looks much younger than her age would imply.
Her doctor asked her to return monthly to keep an eye on the situation, since she was not experiencing any symptoms. For peace of mind, she agreed to go back for checkups and blood work. But, in her mind, she made a conscious decision that her desired outcome could only be perfect health. Knowing the power of words, she refused to speak about it to anyone except her husband. (She didn’t tell me until she was well past the 6 month mark.) She told herself over and over again that she was in perfect health, and she continued with her exercise and riding routine. She was persistent in her thoughts, words, and actions around the outcome she wanted to create, always returning to “I am perfectly healthy,” no matter what other thoughts may have entered her mind just before.
After 6 visits in 6 months, and no symptoms of any kind, she asked to spread out her doctor visits to once every 6 months. Her doctor and staff agreed. They were baffled by the situation.
Fast forward to the present moment. According to the blood work completed during each visit, my client is still told the same thing. She smiles and says she feels perfectly healthy. As of yesterday, she is preparing to take a 100 mile bike ride in the very near future (in the heat and humidity of Florida no less!) She is full of gratitude each day of her life, and is one of the most consistently happy people that I know. She is full of energy and works out regularly. In my mind she’s the epitome of the book title, “You Are a Badass. How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life”
How can you make real magic happen too? The answer is always that you must be persistent in feeling more love. How?
Whatever it is that you want, it requires that you make a decision today about how you picture your "perfect life.” Remember, you are the one creating your life, so you must feel very happy first. When you truly love yourself you know that you deserve genuine happiness. This foundation of authentic happiness allows you to feel more love and gratitude for everyone and everything. It is this wonderful feeling of love that allows your calmness to expand. Calm is where the magic and miracles happen!
Know in your heart that you always have options about your life experiences and its outcome. Be outrageous in your request and expect your true desires to be fulfilled.
Write it down, see it in your mind, and be grateful for it in advance, knowing that you create what you truly want! See a picture of the outcome you desire and be relentless, no matter what is happening in front of you. The happier and calmer you become through loving thoughts, words, and actions... the easier it becomes to keep going.
As you are clear and calm, watch the outcome you desire come to you in some very clever way!
